Holy Trinity, Thanks and Praise to Thee

shallow focus photography of musical note book

Holy Trinity, thanks and praise to Thee,
that our life and whole salvation
flow from Christ’s blest incarnation
and His death for us on the shameful cross.

Had we angels’ tongues, with seraphic songs,
bowing hearts and knees before Thee,
Triune God, we would adore Thee
In the highest strain for the Lamb once slain.

—Lorenz T. Nyberg (1754)
